Dominik and all,

  I agree with Dominik here.  The cap is too high
by a factor of 10 at least!  Domain name speculation
should be eliminated all together given that such are
a form of public interest property although that has
yet to be defined difinitively under law.  But at a 
minimum, speculation on Domain Names themselves is
a bad practice that should in no way be encouraged.
